spoke parmelee about the time he spends with his daughters, reaction to that hateful n.r.a. ad may have shown how warmly the country has adopted them. chris: i'm chris matthews welcome to the show. with us joe klein from "time" magazine, the bbc's katty kay, nia-malika henderson henderson and david leonhardt. the president addresses the country and he will try to project his will that would block his legacy. opposition to barack obama in some quarters is searing. hear how sean hannity greeted the obama victory in november -- >> america wanted barack obama for four more years, and now we have him. by the way, good luck with that. chris: that was a bit sarcastic. today as the president take the oath, the new nbc wall street poll traces a geographic divide. 60% of americans who live in cities say they like the president personally, and like his policies. in the suburbs 43% like him and his policies. but in rural areas it's just 27%. and that's what you see playing out in congress. also inside the poll 6-10 strong republicans dislike the president personally as well as his policies. joe, th
to identify the n.r.a. as the far right and to separate them. nerpped, the right is more out of step than he is -- in other words, the right is more out of step than he is. >> if you look at public opinion broadly, it seems there's been a shift in the country. thrls been a 10% shift to the right amongst the republican party. so you have seen, it's true, a republican party that has shifted to the right. barack obama has managed through issues like gun control and the right through organizations like the n.r.a. to paint them as out of step with the mainstream of america more successfully than the right has managed to depict the president as being out of step with the mainstream of america. chris: i want to ask you about the cover of a magazine, has the country moved more towards the gun control position or not because of the horror at newtown? >> i think they've moved some to that position. the n.r.a. still has a stranglehold, but the president can use the extremism of the n.r.a., who are acting like a bunch of crazies that's days to help sell the rest of his agenda. chris: this is too far out
in this country. ahead of today's key meeting, the nra vice president -- ahead of today's meeting with the nra, vice president biden assured the country, action is on its way. >> there's got to be some common ground here to not solve any problem, but to diminish the probability of what we've seen in these mass shootings. >> there's a real tight window to do this. i've committed to him. i could have these recommendations to him by tuesday. >> recommendations hit the president's desk in five days. now is the time to get this done. the vice president recalled the recent tragedy as the driver for change. >> in all of my years involved in munitions, there has nothing that has peeked the consciousness of the american people, there is nothing that has gone to the heart of the matter more than the visual image people have of little secure kids riddle ed riddled, with a stray bullet, but riddled. i'm not sure i can guarantee this will never happen again, but even as the pthd said, if what we do saves one life, it makes sense. >> a solution is possible. but we need action. sadly, we were reminded of tha

of the nra yesterday, he spoke for the first time about some of the ideas gaining traction, including universal background checks and a ban on high capacity magazine clips. after the meeting of president of the nra said their discussion wasn't "a real conversation" and this morning pushed back against any regulation on gun ownership including background checks and an assault weapons ban. >> i think there's a very different view as to what the problem is and how to solve it. it's not the power of the nra, matt. what it is is the strength of belief among millions of americans in their right under the constitution to privately own firearms. >> no one anywhere is talking about doing away with the second amendment, and no one anywhere is advocating stripping away gun ownership. what began this debate nearly one month ago next week was a massacre in a small town elementary school and a national resolution to keep america's children safer, but at some point that desire to better protect has been undermined by an extreme wythe right wing that seems more concerned with better protecting their

is coming of the gop? some are calling for a make over and a self described former nra partisan, on what it will take to put a stop to the gun violence, that has killed more than 2 million people since newtown. thousands from all over the country gathered, including 100 people from newtown, connecticut, all of them rallied on the national mall, calling for action. a leading liberal voice in the senate will be retiring in 2014. tom harkin said today, quote, it's just time to step aside. he came to washington in 1994 and was a key backer of the 2010 health care bill and congressman paul ryan today spelling out what he learned from the re-election. the re-election of president obama, he is speaking at the national review summit and talking about his experience as a vice presidential candidate, he said moving forward the gop has to layout their vision with more specifics and with a broader appeal. meanwhile, this coming week the president will be unveiling the next step in his second term agenda. immigration. he is going to announce his plan to overhaul immigration. joining me now from the w
insight into that fascinating meeting today at the white house between vice president biden and the nra. what can the vice president, what can the white house reasonably expect to get out of the nra today? >> the nra is going to go in there with a conciliatory face. they're being smart. they're sending not their top lobbyist but an official who has worked with biden over the years, worked with him in the '90s in the senate, is actually friends with him from the delaware beach, jim baker, the nra's number two, but he's coming with a very hard message. the nra told me that in the past 18 days, their paid memberships have gone up 100,000. they've gone from 4.1 million to 4.2 million. and they tell me that before this debate is over, they want to get to 5 million. so the nra sees this fight as a growth opportunity. willie, it's $25 a year, you get a free camo duffel bag with that. and we're told that jim baker, the nra lobbyist, is going to tell vice president biden we're willing to discuss, talk to you about any possible constructive solution, but here's the kicker, we listen to people bey

killed by guns. nra reports an unprecedented surge in membership, up 250,000 over the past month. add to that, record sales of ar-15 assault rifles. what's the solution? more weapons or stricter laws? let's talk about all of that tonight with our studio audience. it's our version of the town hall, the most important issue facing america right now. here is what the president is going to propose tomorrow. he will press for a ban on high capacity magazines with more than ten rounds. he will push for universal background checks and criminal and mental health checks, press for an assault weapons ban and the president will request that money be made available to treat mental illness. and that schools have more security. i agree with most of that. all of this comes on a day of two new school shootings, one in kentucky that left two dead and one in missouri that left two men injured. if you want to be part of the conversation, join us on twitter. use our hash tag which is #gunsinamerica. michael nutter and his police commissioner. delaware attorney general beau biden, son of vice president jo
with us on trying to reduce gun violence. they do not have to be afraid of the radical n.r.a. i say that because there are many gun owners in this country that are good citizens and they should not be tagged with some of these atrocities that are happening. and it's those that we have to call upon to reach out to their members of congress throughout this country because we are here to do the right thing. the president and the vice president are there to do the right thing. and they are going to use their office. but if we as americans don't also raise our voice, then this will begin another losing battle. we cannot afford to lose another battle. we have common sense issues to stop gun violence holistically, but when it comes down to trk the assault weapons -- to it, the assault weapons, large magazines made for our police officers and military, have no right to be on the street, and they do not. and i will say to you as our leader has said, we are all take the oath of the constitution of the united states. we have never tried to infringe on that to legal gun owners. in the package t
? no more innocent loss of life? >> the nra, though, is vowing to fight any restrictions on guns. they don't believe that an assault weapons ban will be able to make it through congress, but nonetheless, the public out there seemingly on the side of what some of these lawmakers are pushing. an abc washington news/washington post poll say 58% support it, 39% oppose it. 51% support a ban on semi-automatic handgun, 46% oppose. on high-capacity clips, 65% support it. 32% oppose it. a lot of things they're trying to deal with. >> dan lothian at the white house. thank you very much. >>> about 18 minutes past the hour. right now let's get you updated on all the news this morning. after denial, lance armstrong has reportedly admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs. the interview will be broadcast on oprah's tv network on thursday. >> more controversy for troubled actress lindsay lohan. the 26-year-old is expected to be arraigned on charges of a car crash from last june when she was already on probation. she fired her long-time l.a. attorney who has managed somehow to keep her out of jail so

loophole is a perfectly good way to go forward. >> we hear the nra described as powerful and influential. just how powerful? did newtown change the dynamic? >> they will continue. there is a shorthand used with the nra. americans to support second amendment rights do so because the nra tells them to. the nra is interested in building their membership. they are not dictating thought to people. people care about their guns. there is a component that goes on between the nra and lawmakers. that relationship is more nuanced than is often portrayed. i would think the nra would push back on any attempt to renew an assault weapons ban. they have been more silent on the background check. >> thank you both for your questions and being with us on "newsmakers" today. [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2013] clacks why did you write a book about your experience? >> it was an important point in history. i thought like the perspective should be brought. i thought it was not completely accurate, about in terms of what i did and what
, the nra comes out saying, oh, now they'll come and take away your guns and the industry profits from that and teachers and other that is profit from being invested in those companies say, hey, maybe this is like blood money. maybe we should not be part of those companies. so is this a divestment strategy that's a morality play or can you have an impact on the gun industry by doing this? >> i'm sure we can have an impact. this industry is rot on the the core. essentially making it easier for people to get the hands on the weapons even if they're used in massacres or shootings like we heard about in atlanta. business as usual is not acceptable. and we change things in part through the legislative group and has an impact where the money is. public pension fund money or shaming these big investment houses in to getting out of the guns and ammunition business. here in new york city, the dirty dozen, 12 big firms between them over 1.6 million in investments in guns and ammunition. we want to get the money out of the industry. by the way, the industry funds the nra. if the nra has a chokeho

the voice of the american public. our message would be to every american out there, gun owners, nra members, mothers, fathers, human beings first. we invite you to join those of us like the brady campaign who are committed to making your voice is heard in washington, d.c. the only place where this issue is a heated partisan political debate is in the halls of congress. there is an extraordinary disconnect between what the american public wants, including gun owners and n.r.a. members, and what our elected officials are doing about it. it is up to us to close that disconnect. we invite you to join us to make your voice is heard. without that, we are not going to get the change that the task force and the president and vice president were talking about today. they have done their job. they have shown a export their leadership, convening a conversation that led to a consensus and they said the solutions that will not only prevent tragedies like sandy hook but prevent the 10,000 murders that happened every year in our country, the 30,000 gun deaths that happen every year. now it is up to us to
what the nra has been doing and i wish they had listen to the majority of their members that are saying we should have universal background checks. an awful lot of them are saying i don't need a large magazine. that's not what i hunt for. i have a gun home to protect my family. we're not taking any of that away. but there's still -- if you read the blogs and everything, i mean, what's being put out there is so far from the truth. but when you think about it, you know, what we're trying to do is holistically, we're trying to look at the guns that cause the most damage, the large magazines which obviously once you go over that 15, 20, 30, 40, up to 100, they say, well, that's taking away our right, but why did we ban machine guns? that's legal by the supreme court. i still go back to the supreme court which they seem to be ignoring right now, the nr a. they don't even want to listen to their own people in the supreme court saying that the municipalities and the sats have the right to make laws to protect their citizens. >> let's go to ron reagan on these thoughts. i want you to watch some
of the nra, the entertainment and video industry more recently. what can you tell us about the outcome? >> reporter: well, jon he met with entertainment industry leaders last night and today he'll meet with the video game industry. there is not a lot of concern about new regulations of any consequence being imposed on their industries or the first amendment on the entertainment side of that. by contrast you talk about the grassroots battle that is growing overt second amendment and the right to bear arms there is a growing concern in washington on the gun control side that the ban on semi-automatic military-style assault weapons might be really hard to achieve for the obama administration despite mr. biden's task force efforts going on for three days in the summit. dianne feinstein the senator from california has the pweurblgs there may not be enougbill. there may not be enough votes to pass that. the idea that high capacity military ammunition magazines could actually be limited, that seems to have some currency and momentum as does the background checks. but this eupl mass on the act
and membership in the national rifle association is surging as a result. they also lowered their prices. the nra touting some 250,000 new members have joined, vowing to fight the president's plan too. they say their second amendment rights are under attack. dan lothian following all of those developments for us this morning. good morning. >> good morning, soledad. the white house sees this package that the president will be rolling out, as a comprehensive way to try to curb gun violence, the president will be doing something we've seen in the past. when he is trying to get something through congress, he involves the public. when he makes the announcement later on this morning, he will be surrounded by young kids. these are kids who wrote intimate letters to the president after the connecticut shootings. that in itself is also under attack. getting criticism that the president is using kids as props as he pushes this policy. that, though, will be the back drop as the president lays out what sources say will be the comprehensive package, focused on an assault weapons ban and pressing for a ban on
association reportedly surging. the nra is touting some 250,000 new members and vowing to fight the president's plan saying their second amendment rights are under attack. dan lothian is following all these developments in washington. what's the latest? >> the white house sees these recommendations as a way to hopefully curb gun violence and some of these things the president has backed before such as a ban on assault weapons. the president shortly after the connecticut shootings came out in support of that. so that's expected to be in the president's plan. also pressing for a ban on those high capacity magazines with more than ten rounds. that's the important note here. the aim here is to cut down on the ability of a gunman to go in and release up to 30 rounds in a short period of time. in addition, the president will be pushing for universal background checks so that everyone who buys aunder questi goes a criminal or mental health check. in addition the president wants to request funds be available for mental health illnesst to make sure there's money there for those things to be treated an
an appearance before a u.s. house committee nutter slammed the nra for this ad that criticizes the president for not wanting to put armed guards in schools while his own daughters get secret service protection. mayor nutter joins me now from washington. welcome, mr. mayor. >> good morning, carol, how are you? >> what did you object to in that nra ad? >> for those of us in the political business, generally it's been pretty much an unwritten but understood rule that family and children are out of bounds, that you don't attack someone's family, if you want to attack the candidate or the elected official, certainly that's your prerogative but generally family has been considered off limits, and that doesn't add anything to legitimate dialogue that really needs to take place on the issues of public safety and gun regulations. >> although some people are also criticizing president obama for surrounding himself with children, when he held his news conference on his gun control plans yesterday. should children be used in that instance? >> i don't think those children were "used." they were there at
that are a danger to themselves including criminals and the mentally ill. nra executive vice president wayne lapierre will testify before the senate today and has released his prepared remarks which, in part, read, quote, when it comes to the issue of background checks, let's be honest. background checks will never be "universal" because criminals will never submit to them. meanwhile, this morning, "the new york times" is reporting that despite chicago's strict gun laws, the city is still struggling to control its gun violence -- guns attributed to more than 500 homicides last year alone in the windy city with at least 40 killings already reported this year. we were talking about this earlier, joe. how do you think this is going to pan out as we look forward on guns? something that you're stepping into a bit yourself. >> well, i think it's great news that you have tom coburn, an oklahoma conservative, who's been a champion on a lot of conservative issues coming out and supporting universal background checks. now, this should be a very simple, obvious thing for politicians on both sides of the a
if, in fact, he does get the job. >>> and vice president joe biden meets with the nra today as the debate over gun violence intensifies. it could be a tough sell since the group has already said it opposes any new restrictions on fire arms. among those speaking out is new york's governor. andrew cuomo is urging lawmakers in his state to close loopholes on the state's assault weapons ban. >> this is not taking away people's guns. i own a gun. i own a remington shotgun. i've hunted. i've shot. that's not what this is about. it is about ending the unnecessary risk of high-capacity assault rifles. [ applause ] that's what this is about. >> he was quite fired up today. yesterday rather. results of a new study are sure to fuel the already intense debate over guns. the u.s. sees far more violent deaths than any other wealthy nation. due in part to the widespread possession of firearms and the practice of storing them unlocked at home. >>> in other news this morning, accused aurora theater shooter james holmes smiled and even smirked at disturbing self-portraits and images of weapon
that they face on that front given the fact that joe manchin and others is an "a" rated by the nra, democrat from west virginia. couple weeks ago immediately after newtown, he was quite open. he said everything should be on the table and in some of the things that we've heard him say over the last 24 to 48 hours where he said the idea of an assault weapons ban alone is just not going to stand. it needs to be something comprehensive. appears clear that there is a lot of challenge to that ban being reinstated in congress. >> peter, we're going the ask you to stand by. i'm going to go to the reverend al sharpton, el shultz here in studio with me. gentlemen, i want to show everybody the front page of politico, double trouble, house gop eyes default, and shutdown. ed, as we just heard peter talking about there, the language being used by republicans in washington, d.c. right now. it will be interesting to hear how the president comes out. is this his first volley at getting to sell this to the american people? >> well, i think it's important that the president come out and set the tone of what the par
at him pretty hard about those statements. where do you see this going from here? >> i think the nra is marginalizing itself daily with the statements they're making and probably making it easier for senate democrats to act. i spoke with a senior member of the house who said to me that this is going to have to start in the senate. that this personal believed that you could pass a pretty decent gun control measure in the house if the senate acted first. >> let's go back to senator feinstein. >> designed originally for the military to kill large numbers of people in close combat. are replicated for civilian use. they fall into the hands one way or another, of grievance killers, of gangs, of those who are mentally unstable or ill. they are sold out of trunks and back-seats of automobiles in cities as well as gun shows with no questions asked. massacres have taken place in businesses, law practices, malls, movie theaters, and especially schools. these massacres don't seem to stop. they continue on. columbine, virginia tech, aurora, tucson, oak creek. a common thread in these shootings is
account that the nra has always outspend the gun control. now we have michael bloomberg involved and now we have steve jobs' widow happening out with gabby giffords pac. finally the gun control side has money. >> the risk of congressional inaction -- just one moment -- >> every day people see us on this show, martin, and they say how wonderful it is that the martin bashir show is focusing on this issue. toure's point is exactly right. if you care about this issue, tell us you care about it by writing a check to one of the great organizations, the mayors group, there's about half a dozen groups that are doing important work. i intend to write a check for them and everybody watching who is interested and concerned about protecting our children and protecting your families and protecting your communities, you have to support these organizations that are doing important work. >> and your original point is absolutely right. the martin bashir point is wonderful. >> thank you. >> yes. >> but the risk of congressional action has prompted some mayors to start taking action. michael nutter of phil
under way and include senator manchin who has an a-rating from the nra. >>> and are republicans turning against senator marco rubio coming to immigration reform? republican senator david vitter calls rubio, quote, amazingly naive on the issue. we'll get the first read on mark murray. >>> you can always join the conversation on twitter. what do you think of the hearings so far for chuck hagel? constipated? yeah. mm. some laxatives like dulcolax can cause cramps. but phillips' caplets don't. they have magnesium. for effective relief of occasional constipation. thanks.
